How good are bad species(or vice versa)? An integrated assessment of effects of plant invasions on ecosystem services

At UFZ since

February 2017

How did you learn about the UFZ?

A friend sent me the link of the website/position because he thought I might be interested.

Why did you come to the UFZ?

It was a combination of topic, institution and people (basically gut feeling).

What do you like about the city you live in?

I'm used to moving a lot between countries & cities, and I always find something beautiful in every place; I find the area very chill with a bunch of parks and lakes.

How do you like it at the UFZ / in HIGRADE?

It's very friendly and intellectually stimulating.


I love art, plants and animals (I spend a lot of time drawing them).
